   I sprained my right ankle about 4 years ago while coaching.

One of my soccer players deflected a ball and it went directly under my right foot in full stride as I was sprinting up the wing. I rolled the ankle all the way over and could see the bottom of my foot. It was pretty gruesome and to this day I have no idea how I did not break any bones. They told me it would have been better if I did. It was the most painful sporting injury I have ever had.

I ended up with severe swelling and bruising, and was in a boot for about 5 or 6 weeks and also on crutches. The bruising went away gradually over the next 6-8 weeks, but the swelling remained for a lot longer, like a year, although it was not as swollen as when I rolled it. I went to physical therapy for awhile. And that is pretty much it.

My problem is the ankle is still sore. It also gets really stiff and I often have to limp around for a few minutes until it loosens up. There may be a small amount of swelling, but it is pretty subtle. I lift weights on it, and I do a lot of calf raises. It aches, but I just ignore it.

Every now and again, the ankle gives when I am walking. I don't roll it all the way, but it is enough to sprain it mildly all over again. I am guessing this is because all of the ligaments and tendons are so stretched out.

So my question is what can I do if anything to fix this? I am worried about the amount of trouble it gives me now at 40 and what it means for me further down the road. Is it some sort of arthritis or is there something I can do to get it repaired, or is just grinning and bearing it what I need to do?
